Brandon Ingram and the New Orleans Pelicans were unable to agree to a contract extension this past October and he is now poised to be one of the more coveted free agents on the market in 2020 after so many of his fellow 2016 draft classmates signed deals.

Ingram will be a restricted free agent.

"Oh, he's going to get the max," said Ingram. "I don't think there's any question about that. By the way, I don't fault the Pelicans for not extending him."
